This year for Easter I thought I would be such a wise Mom & fill the kids up with all sorts of Easter activities before Easter. We did two different Easter egg hunts & opened Easter baskets but saved Easter Sunday for the Savior. I was thinking I was such a smarty and thought it would go wonderfully. I do have to say I was wrong and when we woke up Easter Sunday and the boys ran down the stairs to see if the Easter bunny changed his mind and came anyway my heart hurt and I vowed to never take the bunny out of Easter again. Our Sunday was fine but without the special start to the day it was like any other Sunday. We tried to think more of the Savior and his resurrection (but isn't that kinda what we do any way on Sunday's?) and we had a great dinner with some of our favorite cousins, but next year the bunny is coming back to this house.
Jett is such an easy going guy. It does not take a lot to make Jett happy. The same was true for his birthday. I gave him three options, have a big party at home, a medium party the same place Rex did or have a couple friends go to Amazing Jakes, and he chose option 4 (the one he made up) he wanted to go to a skate park with his Dad. You don't have to convince me. So the morning of his birthday Jett and Ryan went and had a new board built (you gotta know that Ryan was loving this). Then we all went to the skate park to watch Jett have a go. He had no fear and really rocked those ramps. He was a natural (it must be the Johnson in him). I did not get a picture of the park but I did get one of cake after wards. It was the best birthday party ever for Jett (and me).
Here are some things about Jett's year....
Jett started the 2nd grade
HeLOVEShis new teacher
He loves skating and learned to ollie
Jett has decided that girls don't have cooties & that he likes them (much to Rex's dismay)
He has started the countdown for school to be over (not 2nd grade but all school)
He has started scouts and is sure it is the best inventionEVER
He competed in and lost his first pinewood derby
Learned about being a good sport
Finally got his front teeth to grow back Jett got baptized
He still loves all sports and is starting baseball again this Spring
Jett is still the sunshine in our home. He is a peacemaker and a lover of life. There is not a person that he meets that he would not play with. When we drive down the street he hollers out at every one we pass. He is full of energy and asked me this week if I thought hot glue could help him stay in his seat at school. We love the little man he has become & are grateful every day for his sweet spirit. We love you Jetty Poo.
